Hi guys

 

Does the starter/gen on a 1966 chief 1000 need periodic oiling?  I just read the Delco/remy  piece that mentioned periodic  oiling.. Thanks much!

Do you have the Dual bearing or bearing and Bushing combo?

 

The ones with the bushing in the rear should have an oil cap and a few drops from time to dime will do.

No caps, no oiling!  I just got that old Massey and starter is froze up. Tore apart and has bearings with some grease dried in them, and a knock-out cap one end. Maybe that is way to lube?  Bet not meant to be lubed, cept in tear-down or repair mode. NOW, can't get the bearing with end cap to slip off the armature. don't see any snap ring or nothing. Have it soaking now to see if comes off.

I think this is the dual ball bearing generator
